Are you setting up in business and want a brand identity to help you stand out?

Graphic Design & Branding

Are you setting up in business and want a brand identity to help you stand out? Perhaps your business has evolved and needs a different look to reflect its new direction? Maybe you’re looking for marketing material that speaks to your target audience and helps win you sales?

How we work with you

We work hard to understand your company’s aims and principles, then meet your requirements with authentic, inspiring design that exceeds expectations and provides impressive results. We manage every aspect of the creative process, from initial concepts to delivery of your designs, products, packaging and literature.

But what does brand mean?

Your brand is not just your logo. It’s not about the colours or the graphics. It’s how people feel about you, your business and the relationship you have. This relationship starts from the very first time you meet. How you look, what you say, how you communicate: these are all factors that dictate how people will react and whether they choose you. So your logo is the visual representation of your business and what your brand means. And we’d love to help you create that brand. To talk to us about brand and graphic design for your business, please get in touch. We can help you with branding, logo design, marketing material, popup banners, stationery, business cards and much more.
Mike Land, Branding Specialist

Mike Land – Graphic Designer & Branding Expert

They listened to the brief, provided me with several options and executed my logo, in all its iterations, perfectly. I also now have a style guide which will undoubtedly help me as my business continues to grow and we can ensure the company remains on-brand at all times.

Cracking rebranding work from Mike. Couldn’t have asked for a more unique design, but still incorporating the quirky bits from my original logo. Mike really fulfilled the brief and some. 100% chuffed to bits with the outcome and the superb advice along the way.
Mike was fantastic at designing my logo and getting the ideas from my head to paper and then into a logo design in the exact colours I wanted. I would highly recommend Mike to everyone that needed anything designed. He has been a huge help and is literally a design genius!

Meet Mike Land

Mike, who runs design agency Nickel Design, is all about brand – getting it right for you and your business, stripping away what doesn’t matter and communicating what’s important with your target audience, in plain English.

He’s been living and breathing design and branding for more years than he cares to mention, and has worked with some impressive ‘big brands’ – like Texaco, Tie Rack and De Vere Hotels – and many UK charities, including Battersea Dogs Home, Guide Dogs for the Blind and WRVS.

You can spot Mike’s work while you’re zipping along the motorway, above the store front, on retail shelves, in service centres throughout the UK, and on the forecourts of fuelling stations.

And when he’s not immersed in branding, you might find Mike immersed in water (he enjoys outdoor swimming) or at the gym. He’s an enthusiastic charity fundraiser, and recent ventures include abseiling 100m down Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower.
